Natural wine is everywhere in this city. So what makes Bar Gemini, yet another natural wine bar, special? It depends on how often you find a mid-century modern scene with good vibes and excellent small plates—which, as it turns out, isn't very often at all. Located on the east side of the Mission, this spot from the team at Gemini Bottle Co. and Ernest is drenched in warm moody lighting and bumping music that pairs suspiciously well with pét-nat from the Mosel. Featuring 11 wines by the glass (and four on tap) alongside bar bites like a decadent grilled cheese and cacio e pepe deviled eggs, Bar Gemini is an obvious drinks-and-snacks weekend destination.
